The cheapest way is probably a bus. Do compare prices with flights however, sometimes cheap flights are available if you book long enough in advance. Buses are also cheaper when you book in advance but they tend to cap much lower. Rome2rio is convenient to get a review of the different possibilities. Make sure you check actual prices by starting the booking ...

@Relaxed has mentioned the Illico Samedi discount for TER trains. Here's my experience with it: There is a 40% discount (free ticket for children under 12) available for TER (i.e. regional) trains in the Rhône-Alpes region (thus also to Saint-Paul-de-Varax). The discount is available on all Saturdays or every day between July 6 - August 31. Conditions: ...

As per the official tourism website of Yonaguni town as well as Japanese Wikipedia (last updated on 12 May 2016), no, there isn't. The only options are by plane or ferry from Ishigaki or Naha (the ferry from Naha being mentioned only on Wikipedia, and only as "irregular").

At the risk of repetition: Picadilly line tube is by far the cheapest option, requires no changes and at peak times is likely to be much faster. The roads into London can be very, very slow in the morning rush hour. As the trains start at Heathrow you should have no trouble getting a seat. Taxis: be aware of one important thing, there is no designated pick-...

I've never taken a taxi from LHR to London/King's Cross. Picadilly is the way to go and I agree with others that's it's relatively easy as tube basically starts at LHR so it's fairly empty. I've also taken Heathrow Express which is faster. Taxi is the last resort, more expensive and can take longer due to traffic.

If you haven't already, do consider public transport options which are very good and start much cheaper. If you take Heathrow Express then the tube, it's likely to be a little faster than a taxi; if you take the Piccadilly Line, as well as being very cheap, you don't need to change trains so it's still quite convenient (and might even be faster than a taxi ...

It's been a while for me since I was in Mongolia, but I'm quite sure that, in this context, 'jeep' still refers to anything that resembles a Jeep. When I was in Mongolia, the most popular 'jeeps', specifically for touring the country, were Russian made UAZ 'jeeps'. They tend to be quite similar to Jeeps. The kind I remember looked quite a bit like this.

"Jeep" originally referred to a small US Army scout vehicle built by Willys-Overland during WWII. More then 640,000 were produced and they were immensely popular with all Allied armies for their sturdiness, simplicity, and reliability. Since then, "Jeep" has been simultaneously a brand name (of both military and commercial vehicles) that changed hands from ...

Answer is of course, yes. It's totally OK to check items like TVs, microwaves, appliances, when you fly. You see people doing this every time. I believe you should NOT have to pay tax. It would be good if you had the receipt that you originally bought it in Italy, but, my guess if you could "talk your way" from it. After all, it will not look brand new. ...

According to this site: Folding bikes - as long as they are folded - are considered luggage and can be taken free of charge any time of the day. Since a folding bike is considered as luggage, you can take it at any time. This is in common with other train transport systems, such as London transport.

There are a few companies in Tarapoto that go to Chachapoyas, we asked around and we found Movil tours (big buses) and Turismo Selva (combi) that went direct to Chachapoyas and Excluciva (big buses) and Virgen tours (combi) that went to Pedro Ruiz. Pedro Ruiz is a common stop along that route, on the way back we stopped there and flagged a combi type van ...

Around Utrecht there is another option, which ties in to the OV-chipcard, which is to get a montly subscription to the regional transport network "U-OV". You could get for instance the U-OV Gemak Utrecht Stad Maand, i.e. "U-OV Comfort Utrecht City Month" at https://webshop.u-ov.info/nl_NL/webshop/product/details/product/60/tariff/221. It gives you free ...

There is an English version of the ov-chipkaart website: https://www.ov-chipkaart.nl/home-1.htm In my experience, not a whole lot of companies will give out a business card. Also, it is not possible to buy a subscription for unlimited access in both busses and trains. The OV Chipcard can be used for both trains and buses but there is no subscription that ...

If you take the train every day, it is best to get a season ticket for the specific route you're using, e.g. a Traject Vrij Monthly card. It is sent to you by mail on its own chip card, and payments are by automatic bank transfer each month (you can see the bills online). Cost depends on the destination. These cards cover all kinds of public transport, any ...
